Sweet Tarts Smoothie

I didn’t intend to make Sweet Tarts in the blender this morning, but here we are. Simple, healthy, delicious, quick, and energizing, what more can you ask for in a breakfast? Maybe something warm on a cold morning, but that’s what baked oatmeal is for! RECIPE 2/3 cup of raspberries Half of a blood orange, peeled…

Sweet Potato Tikki

I didn’t really dig Indian food as a child, but there were a few exceptions. Aloo tikki, rajma, chaat, and chana masala along with kajur burfi. Basically potato patties, red beans, no way to describe chaat other than maybe Indian nachos, chickpeas, and cashew fudge. Now I’m hungry! Since I’m doing 10 days of sweet…

Oil-free Hush Puppies

Appetizers are my meal of choice. If there is an appetizer sampler on the menu, you better believe I’m all in. There’s just something about crunchy, dipable finger food that gets me every time. And today that’s all I wanted, something crunchy with a dipping sauce. I have been wanting to make queso blanco anyway,…

Queso Blanco

Delicata Pie

I recently became obsessed with delicata squash. It’s fantastic on its own. It tastes almost like caramel. With the holidays approaching, I wanted to try my hand at a pie and I knew this would be the perfect filling! It reminds me of butterscotch. Don’t toss the roasted pulp and seeds. They’re nature’s granola.  …

Country-Fried Brussel Sprouts with Cream Gravy

I really love my produce subscription. I legit look forward to every other Tuesday when my rainbow-filled treasure chest arrives. This Tuesday, I received the unfortunate gift of brussel sprouts. Definitely not my favorite. I’m not one to waste food so I had to get creative. What would any good Southerner do with something they…

Red Enchilada Sauce

I’ve always been more of a tomatillo gal, that is until I decided to make my own red sauce for enchiladas. It’s really simple and freezes well, so make a double batch! Don’t skip any of the steps and definitely use dried, whole chiles. I used arbol, hatch, and Anaheim, but you can use whatever…
